Vitaliy Demyanenko returns to the ring

Undefeated welterweight contender, Vitaliy Demyanenko (20-0, 12 KOs) returns to the ring this Thursday October 11, 2012, at the Remington Park Racing Casino in, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He’ll face veteran journeyman, Roberto Valenzuela (65-63-2, 32 KOs) in a scheduled 6-round bout.

In his last fight, Demyanenko, who’s promoted by Boxing 360, dominated Ayi Bruce (22-8, 14 KOs), winning all eight rounds as the judges’ scorecards read 80-72 across the board. Vitaliy looks to march forward with his career and continue climbing up the welterweight rankings.

“After spending the summer in my homeland of Russia, I’m ready to get back in fighting mode,” said Demyanenko. “I’ve been working hard in the gym and I’ll be ready to take on Valenzuela this Thursday. I know he has a lot of experience, but I’m a young hungry fighter with a goal to be a world champion. I won’t be denied when we face each other.”

“Demyanenko is looking fantastic and I can see him in a big fight in the near future,” said Vitaliy’s promoter Mario Yagobi of Boxing 360. “Right now I’m working on getting him to 25-0. After we reach that milestone, I’m going to put him in a meaningful fight, hopefully for a regional title on a televised m show.”
